Rick Whiting

Businesses are looking to next-generation database systems, data transformation and integration tools and big data analytics software to help them leverage exploding volumes of data. Here’s a look at 10 hot big data startups developing leading-edge software and services that help solution providers and customers meet their big data challenges.

Voltron Data

CEO: Josh Patterson

Headquarters: San Francisco

Voltron Data provides technologies and support services around Apache Arrow, the open-source, language-independent framework for developing data analytics applications that process flat and hierarchical data in the columnar memory format.

Apache Arrow, which as of earlier this year was being installed at a rate of 51 million times per month, is particularly focused on processing and analyzing data generated by large-scale applications and Internet of Things networks.

Voltron Data, founded in 2021, launched in February of this year with an $88 million Series A funding round led by Walden Catalyst. That, including an earlier $22 million seed funding round, brought the startup’s total funding to $110 million. The company’s first commercial offering was an enterprise subscription unveiled in March.
